in hanover, new hampshire. let's get right to the daily fix. chuck todd, host of the daily run-down down, and chris is managing editor from post thanks to you both. chuck, you have the nbc polls in new hampshire and iowa, talking about a big shift where mitt romney is way out in front. herman cain is second, ron paul third, rick perry, a poor fourth, jon huntsman falling behind. and some warning signs for all of the candidates. what is your look at the internal? >> i think when you look and realize the conservative part of the republican party, you can measure it a bunch of ways. in iowa, for instance, half the caucus goers we surveyed identified with the tea party. that was herman cain advantage there. he leads among tea party supporters in iowa. and he does better, he's closer to romney in new hampshire among tea party supporters. the new hampshire republican electorate, though, is more moderate, less conservative than the iowa electorate. that would be the big warning sign for mitt romney as he decides how seriously and how much resources does he devote to iowa. for inst
